Good Evening

Wonder if you can maybe clear something up for me as i cannot find a direct answer on the net....

This is about RGB/ARGB and Asus Aura Sync

Can one "address" argb components through a controller via Aura sync if i have a Sync compatible motherboard without a argb header?

Your feedback will be much appreciated as i am in the market for a upgrade from my current z170 formula, but dont have the funds to go z370 formula.

Good day Evermaak,

In the traditional sense, Aura Sync is only compatible with Aura Sync capable devices, if your controller is Aura Sync compatible, then
it should work.

We haven't tested this theory for ourselves, however we have passed on this request to our HQ for our engineers to provide
further insight for us all :)

Will revert when we have feedback from them.

In the meantime, here's a list of Aura Sync Compatible devices by ASUS Partners Globally: Aura Sync Partners

Kind regards,
ASUS South Africa.

Thank you for the response

To be more specific i want to get a z270 formula with the CM MF120R 3 pack cause it comes with a controller but sins the rgb on the z270 is 12v im not so sure the controller will work with it. BUT.... if Aura communicates with the controller through a usb header i think it should work ....i jist need confirmation :)

Yes we'll be running some promotions with Evetech for the duration of the weekend :)

Why are you partnering up with Satan for the special?

Seriously.

Ask most senior members here how they feel about giving business to Evetech and they would rather go elsewhere.
Wootware and Rebeltech have a far better rep and deservedly so.

Choose your friends carefully.

Help ASUS, where can I get a replacement panel for my ROG G752-VT?

View attachment 38617

Good morning Master Roshi,

We do not provide replacement parts separately, you would need to book it into
one of our service centres.

We have sent you a PM with more details :)

Kind regards,
ASUS South Africa.

Hi @ASUS South Africa ,

I have built my first PC this past month and purchased an Asus ROG STRIX B360-F Gaming motherboard.

I was originally going to purchase "some other" brand of motherboard but was advised against doing so. In the end I am glad with the choice I made. I have to compliment Asus on the quality of their products and the amazing build quality.

Keep up the great work! (y)

Good evening

Was wondering which local suppliers stock Asus GFX's.
Looks like my 1080ti is poked and the guy I bought it from off the forum, never supplied me with a pop.

Happy to PM the serial if that might help.

Also any idea if suppliers are open already?

With CES 2019 off to a great start, we'd love to share some of the amazing new ASUS products that were launched,
including the return of the super rare, MATRIX Graphics Card (this time being the RTX2080Ti), which features an AIO cooler, unlike any other...

Hi @ASUS South Africa

So, just a question regarding a part. I have an ASUS Strix 1080 that I bought here off carb, and the card is working fine. However, I have an issue where the LED tubes on the card are not illuminating properly. I have seen many forum posts basically stating the tubes need to be replaced. Is there any way to get hold of these lighting tubes to try to fix the card? Cn I take it anywhere to be repaired? I have it vertically mounted and it's quite a buzzkill. I have attached a pic for you to see the issue. Basically only half the card illuminates.

EDIT: I managed to find and order the LED tubes from Amazon and it's an easy fix to do so no worries.

Good morning @Aegon!

Unfortunately we do not sell these parts seperately, and our service partners do not carry out these types of repairs.

It is great to hear however that you found a solution! :)

Would you kindly post a link to the solution you found, so as to help future members should they have a similar issue?

Thanks!

Kind regards,
ASUS South Africa.

Sure.

Here is the thread I found with links to the product from Amazon, and how to fix it. Its very easy, and I tested this last night by taking the strips out. So yeah, a 10minute fix after getting hold of the cable for anyone else who might run into this issue.

DIY: Strix 1060-1080Ti/Vega RGB Lighting/Under-glow fix for discoloration or dimness
